2009/10 Prospect Draft help

Postby brehh » Mon Nov 09, 2009 11:41 pm

Players are considered Minor League eligible if they have not played in the majors leagues at all and are under contract by a MAJOR LEAGUE TEAM ONLY .

Draft is for players who have been drafted this past draft. Ackley, Tate, etc...

The first two picks have been

1. Strasburg
2. Aroldis Chapman

Who are players to target and if anyone would post a top 20 that'd be great.

Much appreciation

Well by those rules Chapman shouldn't be eligible yet.

Next 20 from the 2009 draft:
1.Dustin Ackley, SEA
2.Donovan Tate, SD
3.Bobby Borchering, ARI
4.Jacob Turner, DET
5.Aaron Crow, KC
6.Grant Green, OAK
7.Tyler Matzek, COL
8.Mike Trout, LAA
9.Tony Sanchez, PIT
10.Zach Wheeler, SF
11.Everett Williams, SD
12.Jarrett Mitchell, CHA
13.Max Stassi, OAK
14.Shelby Miller, STL
15.Aaron Miller, LAN
16.Drew Storen, WAS
17.Will Myers, KC
18.Brett Jackson, CHN
19.Mike Leake, CIN
20.Jiovanni Mier, HOU

The real wild card is Drew Storen. He's been dominant in the pros and will get legitimate consideration as the Nats Opening Day closer. Depending on your league and how much you value closers, this could put him pretty high on the list. I didn't forget Minor & Gibson. I'm in the camp that worries about their upside.

No Scheppers? I would probably put him after Ackley. he's been very impressive in the AFL according to those that have seen him.

Scheppers has a scary injury history and could end up in the bullpen. I thought about him at the bottom of the list. No way I'd put him above 16.

In fantasy I would. And I don't think his injury history scares me anymore than the flameout rates of toolsy HS OF'ers like Tate or HS pitchers. and there is also the length of time that it takes HS players (other than a couple elites) to get to the majors.

Scheppers has great upside as a starter. He should be in the majors quick (important in fantasy). And I think he carries less injury risk than many think. worst case you drop him and pick up a decent prospect since most leagues don't have more than 100 MiLB'ers protected.

Whoever picked Chapman apparently fooled the rest of the league into thinking he was signed by an MLB team....

Completely agree. Criminal to leave Scheppers off the list. I'd have him after Ackley too I think. Watched the AFL AS game and he looked great.

Once again, you do understand that Chapman is not signed by an MLB team and thus not eligible for your draft, right?

The Cuban SS that signed with the Red Sox (Jose Iglesias I think) for around 8M should be on the list also. I haven't much time to read up on but I've seen enough positive buzz which would put him ahead of a lot of the HS'ers in the from the draft. He seems to have been signed with absolutely no fanfare and seems to be unheard of by most.
